    I get mine from JoAnn's or the LQS. I prefer the one from the LQS, but price dictates most of the time so it's JoAnn's with a coupon. Rayon or polyester, depending on the color I need.

    If you have a Hancock's in your area, they also have varigated thread, too. If it isn't on sale, you can use a coupon for it there, also.

    Coats & Clark makes a cotton brown, tan variegated that I love & use a lot & I buy that at Joann's with a coupon. I use rayons & poly's too where ever I can find the color combo I am looking for.

    I bought an autumn gold-rust variegated thread at JoAnn's to stitch in the ditch on my husband's quilt. It worked very nicely. There were a lot of fall colors in that quilt, and it blended beautifully with the backing.

    What I'm confused about with variegated thread because the changes between colors are so subtle, or so far apart, that I can't really see the effect. Am I looking at something wrong, or expecting too much?

    I usually order online but couldn't tell you the site or the kind of thread. All I know is my machine loves it. I have ordered King Tut from Superior Threads - expensive but wonderful thread. I have also ordered from Connecting thread, works fine - again, couldn't tell you what kind
    my suggestion to you is try different kinds to find what your machine likes.
